Abstract

The flow characteristics of a vaned radial diffuser typical of those currently used in centrifugal compressors have been determined experimentally by using a static diffuser test rig. The vortex test vehicle (VTV) portion of this rig was used to simulate the essential features of the flow leaving the impeller of an actual compressor. The mean flow phenomena at the diffuser entrance and the static pressure recovery along the diffuser passage have been determined.
